Perhaps one of the most draconian of the 2013 changes to employment law is the reduction in the period for consultation, effective from 6th April 2013, when an employer proposes to make large-scale redundancies.

To see the potential impact of what the reduction in the period for collective consultation could have, view our full employment rights legal blog.
